Obama Zombies?

LOL

Let me show you a real zombie.

In 2004, it would be the voter who had no trouble with:

*Bush and Cheney's WMD lies.

*The Outing of CIA manager Valerie Plame.

*The widespread use of military torture against innocent people.

*Bush blowing it on 9-11 after Tenet warned of an impending attack, including a reference indicating air hijackings.

And the GOP Zombie response?

OOOooooh... show me the lever marked "R"... slobber, drool... must vote Republican... Fox News said so... OOOooooh.

Sort of like "Innocence of Muslims" becoming a household name in Pakistan after Obama and Clinton ran their TV ads condemning the video on Pakistani TV?
"too stupid to understand risks of going public too quickly with supposedly irrefutable intelligence."
Yeah, perhaps Obama and Clinton shouldn't have come out with that "spontaneous demonstration" against a despicable-nasty-horrid-putrid -disgusting-anti-Muslim video story so fast.
Perhaps Obama should have followed the advice he gave Gov. Romney when he said "As president, one of the things I've learned ... it's important for you to make sure that the statements that you make are backed up by the facts."
Obama and Clinton wanted people to "buy" their crap of YouTube video, because they screwed up big time in Benghazi ...

WHAT ABOUT REAL VIDEO...BENGHAZI 9/11...?????

Still blaming Obama for the Bush recession.
Seems someone (you) forgot we were losing 500,000 jobs per month when Bush left town.
But of course, that has nothing to do with more people being on food stamps, does it?

In your numbing blindness, you miss the point I make, which is none of the presidents and congressmen of the past considered using the legislative power of congress or that of the executive to give preferential treatment to Christianity.

That was strongly upheld tradition until Bush, under the influence of the Christian right, signed a law which gave certain churches federal subsidies. Those connected with the GOP getting the lion's share.

The Faith-Based Charities Act, or something akin to that title.

The democrat recession:
The Government-Created Subprime Mortgage Meltdown
by Thomas J. DiLorenzo
The thousands of mortgage defaults and foreclosures in the "subprime" housing market (i.e., mortgage holders with poor credit ratings) is the direct result of thirty years of government policy that has forced banks to make bad loans to un-creditworthy borrowers. The policy in question is the 1977 Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), which compels banks to make loans to low-income borrowers and in what the supporters of the Act call "communities of color" that they might not otherwise make based on purely economic criteria.
The original lobbyists for the CRA were the hardcore leftists who supported the Carter administration and were often rewarded for their support with government grants and programs like the CRA that they benefited from. These included various "neighborhood organizations," as they like to call themselves, such as "ACORN" (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). These organizations claim that over $1 trillion in CRA loans have been made, although no one seems to know the magnitude with much certainty. A U.S. Senate Banking Committee staffer told me about ten years ago that at least $100 billion in such loans had been made in the first twenty years of the Act.
So-called "community groups" like ACORN benefit themselves from the CRA through a process that sounds like legalized extortion. The CRA is enforced by four federal government bureaucracies: the Fed, the Comptroller of the Currency, the Office of Thrift Supervision, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The law is set up so that any bank merger, branch expansion, or new branch creation can be postponed or prohibited by any of these four bureaucracies if a CRA "protest" is issued by a "community group." This can cost banks great sums of money, and the "community groups" understand this perfectly well. It is their leverage. They use this leverage to get the banks to give them millions of dollars as well as promising to make a certain amount of bad loans in their communities.
No sub prime mortgages, no recession.
LOL

Oh, I see.

The Republican Party which had a majority in Congress were "blackmailed"?

Is that it?

I guess Bush couldn't use his presidential veto power, either.

While we're at it, let's pretend Bush didn't sign The American Dream Act, which virtually removed the obstacle of the 10% downpayment.

Yep, it's all our fault. Isn't it amazing how much power we Democrats wield when we don't have the presidency and have fewer votes in Congress than the oppposition?

Why it's TERRIFYING.

Thoughts from The Diplomad

"Unlike Saddam, the Taliban, or Al Qaeda, crazy old Qaddafi posed no threat to the US homeland or to our interests abroad. One of the great achievements of the Bush administration was that it defanged Qaddafi-- dismantled his nuclear weapons program and turned him into a valuable source of information on Al Qaeda. That administration basically treated Qaddafi as though he were an aged sex offender, put him under house arrest and tagged him with an ankle monitor. Qaddafi, once the darling of the left, became just a cranky old man with an odd fashion sense selling his oil to whomever wanted it. <....> [W]e had an imperfect solution in an imperfect world.

Then, Qaddafi got himself a rebellion. OK. People in Libya are unhappy. OK. He is a crazy gangster and responded like a gangster. OK. And our interests are what? Are they so pressing as to justify Obama's incredible abuse of Presidential power? <...> What is the mission? No Fly Zone, or blast Qaddafi into the arms of 72 virgins? What result will make any difference to American national interests? What are our interests in this?

Those questions never got answered, and we ended up as predicted,

The US, of course, will have to take over the whole operation when it becomes patently clear that neither the British nor the French have the capabilities needed. That, therefore, means the whole mess will be ours: the UN will back off; the Arab League will be nowhere to be seen; and the EU will be snickering behind our backs with not a word of thanks for having secured their oil supplies. And the Libyans? All of them, pro- and anti-Qaddafi, will be angry with us and our intervention."

Disaster Recovery Teams Turned Away in New Jersey – Power Company workers turned away because they are non-union….

Hey New Jerseyites… How’s that Red-Tape thingy working out for you now?

Scratching For The Truth – Benghazi blunder: Obama unworthy commander-in-chief

The Obama administration sat by doing nothing for seven hours that night, ignoring calls to dispatch help from our bases in Italy, less than two hours away. It has spent the past seven weeks stretching the story out, engaging in misdirection and deception involving supposed indigenous outrage over an obscure anti-Muslim video, confident that with the aid of a docile press corps this infamous climax to four years of misguided foreign policy can be swept under the rug, at least until after Tuesday’s election.

Really? NOT what it says here!

SEASIDE HEIGHTS, NEW JERSEY (WAFF)- The hurricane-ravaged east coast has been receiving north Alabama help, but crews from Huntsville Utilities learned they’ll be doing work in Long Island, New York instead of in New Jersey.

Crews from Huntsville, as well as Decatur Utilities and Joe Wheeler out of Trinity headed up there this week, but Derrick Moore, one of the Decatur workers, said they were told by crews in New Jersey that they can’t do any work there since they’re not union employees.

It’s not the news anyone wants to hear, but a coastal storm may affect New Jersey during the middle of next week.

Forecast models show the potential for a nor’easter to develop and bring more wind, rain and even some inland snow Tuesday night and Wednesday. Let’s be clear though, if the storm does develop it will have nowhere near the impacts of Hurricane Sandy, but could hamper recovery efforts and cause some further beach erosion along the coast.
